    If you want to use WinPE 4.0 or WinPE 5.x, you will need to follow the workaround described in (WinPE) Workaround for provisioning the Windows Server using WinPE 4.0 or WinPE 5.0.

  3. Copy the image files to the appropriate location for provisioning. See Copying image files to a location for provisioning.
